Brief description:
The proposal of an unconditional basic income touches on nearly every aspect of shared life. In fact, the question of social security is important to everyone but it is more about global and social participation in life. For example, the matter of gender
(what kind of use “counts”?), the environment (is it important to have an ecological environment so that there is one for everyone?), the countries of the South (how to conquer the racist global distribution of work?), and migration (how can we make participation for all possible?)
First day: what is an unconditional basic income? How would it work? The fight against poverty, dignity, facilitating activity, facilitation the abolition of absurd projects, new technology/3D printing
Second day: an unconditional basic income throughout the world: basic income in the form of food, international taxes, European cooperation, migration
Third day: Utopian surplus of the minimum wage: eliminating obligatory work, recognising all forms of productivity, lack of state wealth, society of free trade.
